DAY OF ACTION: "WHAT TO DO WHEN A LOVED IS ARRESTED" TRAINING PROGRAM and A CALL TO ACTION | FEARLESS
The Next Movement has held a number of community forums that provide information to families on what they should expect if one day they get a call from a loved one that someone they love has been arrested.
We want to make this information more broadly available in our community, so this session will focus on training individuals on how to facilitate a community forum themselves. LUNCH BEGINS AT 11:30.
As with all other events we will be showing movies too!
In "A Call To Action," a teenage activist shows the misunderstanding and meaning behind the Black Lives Matter movement through her student led organization. "Fearless" is a documentary short focused on 10,000 Fearless men and women who are determined to empower a struggling community in the midst of gun violence and uncertain conditions on the South Side of Chicago.
3:00 PM - 5:30 PM
